    I am wondering how to install Office 2007 over Office XP.
    Do I just install Office 2007? Should I uninstall Office XP first? after?
    Will there be an impact on Outlook?
    Running XP on a Toshiba Portege 4010 laptop

    Just trying to avoid problems before I cause them.
    Thank you.

    When you install Office 2007, it will find Office XP and ask if you want to replace it. If you say "no," it will install 2007 in a different directory, keeping both versions of Office with one exception. You cannot have more than one version of Outlook, so regardless of what you choose, Outlook will be replaced.

    OK thanks. Will the Outlook email account setting etc. be kept or must I re-enter all that info? Other settings?
    I assume that Office 2007 will open all files from previous versions.
    Can I then delete Office XP without complications? Should I do this delete after installing Office 2007 or before?
    Thanks!
